to your campaign, that's not change. that's old. that's the washington that needs to change. now, virginia, after four years as president, you know me. you know me. so, so, when you're trying to sort through this argument about change, you know, part of what you have to ask yourself is who do you trust? you know, when you're talking about the economy and policy that's so critical, you've got to trust. michelle doesn't agree with every decision i've made. there may be times when you're frustrated at the pace of change. i am frustrated sometimes with the pace of change. but you know i mean what i say. and i say what i mean. you know what i believe. you know where i stand. when i said we'd end the war in iraq, we ended it. when i said we'd pass health departmentcare reform, we passed it. when i said we'd repeal don't ask, don't tell, we repealed it. you know i tell the truth. and, most importantly, you know i will fight for you and your families every single day as hard as i know how. so let me tell you. i know what real change looks like. i've faugt for it. i've got the scars to prove it. an
the way they are. we've seen over the last four years the status quo in washington they are powerful and they have fought us every step of the way. we've tried and succeeded in reforming our health care system. they spent millions trying to stop us. when we tried and succeeded in reforming wall street, they spent millions to push us back. we kept on going but those were tough fights. what they are counting on now is that you'll get worn down by all the squabble. you'll get fed up with the dysfunction. you'll give up on the change we fought for. you'll walk away and leave them to make decisions that affect every american. in other words, their bet is on cynicism but iowa you taught me to bet on you. you taught me to bet on hope. i'll work with anybody of any party to move this country forward. if you want to break the gridlock in congress you'll vote for leaders who feel the same way whether they're democrats or republicans or independents. the kind of iowa leaders you've always had. there's some principles you got to fight for. there are times where you got to take a stand. the price
? in a very important election. and you're going to tell me we can't do better than this? washington ought to fix this no matter who wins. maybe they're hoping the democrats just will go home. they don't want to wait in line anymore. joining me tonight, mitch sezer. he's also on the executive board of the democratic committee as a representative of the 14 southern states. i mean, it's great to have you with us tonight. but it just infuriates me when i see video tape like that. i mean, we vote like a third world country. >> well, welcome to ground zero. homeland of rick scott. i will expand the bid and tell you that folks who got online before 7:00, those people had a process by either midnight or 1:00 a.m. this morning. these are people who want their dmok, want the right to vote, and what's standing in their way, as you said, is governor rick scott. >> why is he doing this? why isn't he saying we're going to exhaust every effort we can to make sure there's democracy. i know the answer to it. i want to hear yours. >> it's obvious democrats do well in early voting. statistics prove it. also
're going to tell me that we can't do better than this? washington better fix this no matter who wins. maybe they are hoping the democrats will go home and they don't want to wait in line anymore. joining me now is chairman of the broward county democratic party on the executive board of the national committee as a representative of the 14 southern states. i mean, it's great to have you with us but it just infuriates me when i see videotape like that. we vote like a third world country. >> well, welcome to ground zero, which is south florida, homeland of rick scott. lee expand a bit and tell you that yesterday in broward, dade, and palm beach, folks that got online right before 7:00, those people are following a process by either midnight or 1:00 a.m. this morning, these are people who want their democracy, want the right to vote and are standing in their way. >> why isn't he saying, we're going to exhaust every effort that we can to ensure that there's democracy? i know the answer to that. i want to hear yours. >> it's obvious that democrats do well in early voting, also minorities tend to
the time. the spirit of it is go out to the polls. the "washington post" has a pretty strong assessment of why this is so in some ways despicable on the national stage. the romney campaign thinks so little of the american voter at this point. that we don't need the specifics, that you can get away with these small attacks to obfuscate the larger message which is we don't know what romney is about, he hasn't taken questions from reporters and this is your closing argument? >> they've not only taken out an ad but they have repeated this almost half a dozen times today on the stump. what do you make of it? is this really a focal point now for the romney campaign and their closing argument of the american people? >> i don't think it's so much a focal point but a reemphasis, just sort of making the point as you saw in the rest of the clip there, the contrast, the president wants to talk about your vote being a matter of revenge and i want to talk to you about your vote being about america. so i think they were setting that up. i get the joke. if romney had used that word in the context of so
been a storm in washington for the past four years. people couldn't see it, just by turning on the tv, but they hear about it. we have a continuing financial crisis in this country, and the republican obstructionists, well, they refuse to help. president obama came into office with a crisis on the scale of this current natural disaster. it required a heavy lift. from all players to get america back on track. republicans, where were they? well, they were not willing participants. journalist michael grunwald wrote, "vice president joe biden was warned not to expect any bipartisan cooperation on major votes. biden said, i spoke to seven different republican senators who said, joe, i'm not going to be able to help you on anything." his informants said senate minority leader mitch mcconnell had demanded unified resistance. the way it was characterized to me was for the next two years we can't let you succeed in anything. that's our ticket to coming back. what if we took that attitude right there to the storm damage and cleanup? now mitt romney said he's the guy who can reach across the ais
in washington, grover norquist. according to norquist, mitt romney is not supposed to do anything except what the republicans tell him to. >> we don't need a president to tell us what direction to go. we know what direction we want to go. we want the paul ryan budget which cuts spending $6 trillion. the republicans in the house passed 24-plus bills that create jobs and opportunity and strip out regulations. we just need a president to sign this stuff. we don't need someone to think it up or design it. we have a house and a senate. the leadership now for the modern conservative movement for the next 20 years will be coming out of the house and the senate. >> so what he's saying is all they really need is a waffler in chief. this is the republican vision for american leadership. do it our way and that's it. they reject any attempt to stimulate the economy or pass legislation to help create jobs in this country. they openly brag about that, you know, their plan is to make president obama a one-term president. they kill compromise deals, brokered between democrats and republicans. this is the par
